What to expect from a detailed roof inspection survey

The visual inspection of a roof by one of our trade-accredited roofers will take approximately one to two hours to complete.

During the inspection the roofer provides a detailed assessment on each section of the roof. Each survey includes information and professional opinion on the following parts of the roof structure: – 


  • Roof coverings; including the type, condition and defects

  • Flashing; general condition and the ability to prevent leaks

  • Chimneys; condition of brickwork, pointing, pots and flaunching

  • Drainage and guttering; drainage defects and potential damp problems

  • Parapet walls; condition of pointing, brickwork, render and capping

  • Skylights, including Velux windows; condition and likelihood of leaks

  • Fascias, soffits and barge boards; general condition and possible issues

  • Internal structure; condition of timbers and visible signs of stress

Following the inspection we’ll provide you with a detailed report supported with photos. Finally, a quote for any recommended work will be provided.

Cost: £250.00

Why should I have a roof inspection?

When winter is coming with its unpredictable weather conditions , Autumn is the ideal time to book your property in for a roof inspection. Cold weather often causes the most damage to the exterior of a home, due to the increased precipitation, harsh winds and formation of ice dams.

Whatever the season, roof inspections are crucial for early detection of potential problems. Professional roofing companies often have years of experience in the industry, and can identify hidden problems. Some issues that can develop on the average roof include:

  • Weathering

  • Storm and snow damage

  • Obstructed drains/gutters

  • Vegetation damage

  • Build up of debris and mould

If these issues are allowed to develop they could not only reduce the lifespan of your roof, but they could also impact the structural integrity of your property, leading to costly repairs. In addition, any weakness in your roof’s structure could also turn into a security issue, as criminals may target it for easy entry into your home.

How much does a roof inspection cost?

At Tonbridge Defender, we like to offer a basic roof inspection for free to every customer. For an in depth roof inspection as described above, which can take 3-4 hours including the written report and photographs, we charge a nominal fee of £250.00 plus VAT.  However, if you choose to employ us to remedy these issues then we will deduct the call out fee from your quote. As a homeowner, it’s important that you take advantage of these no-cost and low-cost roof inspections, as catching problems early can save you lots of money and stress in the future.

How often should I have a roof inspection?

The answer will vary depending on several factors, such as; the material of your roof, the age of your roof, and the repair history of your roof. Generally, they are recommended to be performed every 1 – 5 years depending on these individual elements. A trusted roofing contractor, such as Tonbridge Defender Roofing, should be able to advise further.
